Audio/Video Testimony Tips
  • Audio Conditions - Record in a quiet place, where you are not likely to be interrupted.
  • Camera Orientation – Film with landscape orientation (horizontally.) This will be most practical for viewing on all types of devices.
  • Keep it Concise - Content should be simple, short, and engaging. Testimony should be limited to 3 minutes length and 25MB file size. 
  • File Format - should be in .mp4 format
